According to the European Commission, the visit of the new US President Joe Biden will not hide the online stimulus for hatred. President Ursula van der Leyen calls on American technology companies (Big Tech) to collectively control the digital things surrounding data.
According to the news system Reuters The EU is relieved that the Donald Trump era and its first US strategy have come to an end with the inauguration of President Joe Biden. Through the head of the Electoral Commission, a ‘new morning’ has arrived in which the United States and the European Union can reunite to solve global problems and improve economic cooperation.
Fight against the dark forces
However, Van der Lion does In his speech The dark anti-democratic forces that have emerged in recent years – instigated by the Trump administration – have not yet disappeared. He points out that these dark forces are taking full advantage of the opportunities offered by (mostly American) big tech companies. It is therefore logical that the EU should be aware of this and continue to consider digital regulations for big tech companies such as Google, Facebook and Apple.
The EU can regulate these regulations to some extent through its digital and competitive legislation, but (US) big tech companies are also willing to cooperate. Van der Leyen therefore calls for cooperation between American technology companies and the EU to form the so-called EU-US General Technical Council. This collaboration should become the first step towards a global regulation of digital affairs.
In particular, in this advisory panel, all sorts of things related to the regulation of digital matters should be organized. Think about things around AI and complex algorithms for large amounts of data. But the use of data by self-driving cars or sharing against disease.
